Comfort shopping...fabric style!

Yesterday was one of those days...cold & foggy...and a funeral that I HAD to go to a couple of hours drive away. We all do them occasionally & they are never much fun...our mothers said there are some things we just HAVE to do & yesterday was one of those things. I did listen mum.
So, to brighten the mood I stopped at a great needlework/patchwork shop on the way home at East Maitland...Southern Cross Needlework. Comfort shopping...not eating! Rhonda has gorgeous fabrics & is really kind & helpful...it was tempting to just back the car up to the door & load it all in...but I was good & just bought a few treats...not as fattening as chocolate thank goodness!
Found some great Paris fabric...not sure what I will do with it yet...DD loves it!
Great repros...perhaps a repro hexie project????
 And some fabric loveliness from Phillip Jacobs and Kaffe Fassett...delish! Aah...I feel better now...
